I never thought I would have a brown eyed baby. I don't know why I really thought that, but it does surprise me.
Perhaps because Andrew's eyes are so blue that I expected the same with Lily. After all, their dads both have brown eyes and Andrew's are brighter blue than my own, so I knew blue was possible. I was hoping Lily would end up with dark hair like her daddy with blue eyes like me. I love that combo! Since her hair didn't really grow until well after 2 years old, the hair was still up in the air. It's blonde. I suspect it will darken as she gets older just as mine did and Andrew's did also.
Actually, Lily has two different colored eyes. Slightly. But in natural light, you are able to truly tell. One is more dark brown and the other is more of a golden amber.
Brown eyes and blonde curly hair? Not my expectation at all.
